Eddie Hearn, the promoter of the unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, is a firm believer that his golden goose will defeat both Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.
Not only that, the Matchroom Boxing man says Joshua can and will knock out both of them.
The last time “AJ” won via KO is in 2018 when he beat Russia’s Alexander Povetkin. Since then, Joshua has one loss and one win against Andy Ruiz Jr.
The Brit is due to face Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev in December. The Balkan fighter is an IBF mandatory challenger. “The Cobra” has only one loss in his resume and it was by the hands of the former heavyweight rules Wladimir Klitschko back in 2014.
Fury, on the other hand, has never been beaten throughout his entire professional career.
“I actually messaged him and I said: ‘You’re going to steamroll through these guys,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“He just replied in capitals and said: STEAMROLL! I think he’d love to stop Fury. Yeah. He knows that Fury is an outstanding fighter and it’s going to be very difficult. But you can ask him for yourself, I believe he has bad intentions in those fights and I believe he expects to. I believe he will knock out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.
“I think he’s ready to start doing a demolition job on these guys. I think he’s shown, coming back from the Ruiz Jr fight, that he has the ability to box and move. That’s in the arsenal now. But he still loves knocking people out – and when you see the drills when you see the pads and you see that spite in his shots.”
